Grand View Point

Grand View Point in Grand Teton National Park offers wonderful, high views of the Tetons, Jackson Lake, and Two Ocean Lake. The trail is short and steep. Cool mornings give more comfortable hiking and better lighting, while afternoon hiking is hotter, but illuminates Two Ocean Lake wonderfully. On a hot afternoon, we drove the dirt […]

Two Ocean Lake

Two Ocean Lake

The quiet loop around the beautiful Two Ocean Lake in Grand Teton National Park is a tale of two halves. Along the north shore, you have drier meadows with ample views of the lake, while the south shore is in the shadow of a ridge making for damp, treed walking. It’s mostly level and a […]

Spring 2017 Transitions

The world is always transitioning, even when it feels static. In the middle of winter, transition is happening, but it feels just like, well, winter.

As September […]

Colonnade Falls

Colonnade Falls

Colonnade Falls in the Bechler area of Yellowstone National Park embody the reason why this area is called “Cascade Corner”. It’s a long, level day hike to get to these falls, but you are treated to a two stage waterfall and another bonus waterfall called Iris Falls (which I LOVED!) 1/4 mile up the trail. […]

Terraced Falls in Yellowstone National Park is one of the many waterfalls found in the southwest corner of the park known as the Bechler area. The hike to this aptly named waterfall is short, fairly level, and a delight as you follow Cascade Creek, then the Falls River to a wonderful perch overlooking Terraced Falls. […]
